With only 5 ingredients this treat could not be easier to make. A wonderfully crisp delicate layer topped with a butter toffee and chocolate. Nuts optional. The secret ingredient is saltine crackers. Great on a cookie tray and takes only a few minutes to make.Unlike other toffee recipes, this one is delicate and very flaky crisp. Just chocolate toffee perfection!

How To Make chocolate toffee candy crisps

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan (jelly roll pan) with foil. Grease the foil lined pan with shortening.
  • 2
    Place crackers in a single layer to cover the bottom of the pan (breaking them if needed to fit)
  • 3
    In a medium saucepan,over medium heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Whisk constantly and when it begins to boil gently, start timing and let it boil gently for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Take off heat after the 3 minutes.
  • 4
    Pour toffee layer over cracker lined pan. Spread if needed to cover the crackers. (work quickly, as it does tend to harden quickly)
  • 5
    Bake toffee covered crackers in preheated 375 degree oven for 5 minutes.
  • 6
    Take out of oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the entire pan. Let sit a few minutes, and with a spatula spread the melting chocolate chips to create an even chocolate layer. If using nuts, sprinkle nuts evenly over the chocolate.
  • 7
    Let completely cool to the point of the chocolate being hardened. Cut into about 48 squares. Be ready for it to disappear!
